What you need to know

  • The ThinkBook 14s Yoga is a new budget-friendly convertible business laptop.
  • It features a siloed pen for inking, 11th Gen Intel Core processors, Dolby Vision display, and two SSD slots
  • Limited-edition Abyss Blue colorway

Lenovo is expanding its relatively new ThinkBook line of business laptops that add a bit of consumer flair to them. The ThinkBook 14s Yoga is a moderately priced convertible laptop starting at just $879, but the limited-edition Abyss Blue colorway is a real surprise.

The specs of the ThinkBook 14s Yoga are inline with a mid-range business laptop for late 2020, including 11th Gen Intel Core processors up to an i7, Intel UHD Graphics (instead of the higher-performing Intel Xe), Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, up to 40GB of DDR4 RAM and two PCIe SSD slots.

Being a convertible and a Yoga means this laptop has a built-in smartpen siloed into the chassis. Popping it out wakes the computer in modern standby, and lets users jump right into notetaking without missing a beat.
